Class Name: Nature Explorers
Day and Time: 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 11am
Join us as we practice paying attention to the natural world around us. We will meet at various nature areas throughout the year to learn and play. Each gathering will have a different focus which the coordinators will talk about throughout the exploration. We love celebrating each child as they share or try something new.
Format: Gather on blankets at Base Camp, eat snack or lunch while we introduce topic (via book/poem), then go exploring, and wrap up with craft or show and tell.
Rules & Guidelines:
- Parents/Guardians are responsible for their own child/children at all times during all events/meetings.
- Parents/Guardians must insure that all members of their family/party know the group rules.
- All individuals, adults and children, must stay with the group at all times.

SPECIFIC EVENT INFORMATION: Pond Study and Native Plants - Theis Attaway Nature Center
About the Park: This park is tucked away into a small square of Tomball, so the trick will be finding it! There are eight parking spaces, with one reserved for handicapped individuals. There is more parking at Walmart across the street (see image below). The park is nicely shaded, with bathrooms and nature center. Easy access for strollers and wagons. Base Camp will be at the amphitheater, just beyond the parking lot. https://tomballtx.gov/342/Theis-Attaway-Nature-Center
